Joi's Story

Meet Joi! Joi is a fun, frisky party animal who loves to be where the action is!  Joi recently returned from a stay in a foster home earlier this spring, where she loved to be the center of attention among her human roommates. She especially liked when they would have parties, and would plant herself right in the middle of the fun! Joi also channeled her inner TSA Agent by inspecting every nook and cranny of her foster home, and her foster family tells us that she is very curious and loves to explore... she even tried to convince her foster family to let her continue her investigations outdoors! Nice try, Joi!

Joi can be a bit picky about where she likes to be pet, and she’s not shy about letting you know when she’s had enough interaction for the time being. She would do best in a home with experienced cat adopters who can read her signals and recognize when she’s getting overstimulated, and who will respect her wishes to be left alone if she’s not feeling too snuggly at the moment! Overall, Joi is a fun, active cat who loves to play, hang out, and observe the world outside her windows. If you’re looking for an energetic kitty to keep you company this summer, look no further—Joi is the cat for you!
